Program Description

Event Details

Route 25 stretches from the very western part of Manhattan all the way to the Orient Point Ferry Terminal at the far eastern tip of Long Island's North Fork. Along the way, this iconic thoroughfare has different names (Jamaica Avenue, Hillside Avenue, Main Street, Queens Boulevard to name a few) but one common purpose: to stitch together the communities of Long Island and to provide a direct route for commerce and town identity. If you've lived on Long Island for any period of time, you are familiar with Route 25 in one way or another. In this fascinating program, Eco-Photo Explorers will explore the historic past of Route 25, and examine its special place in the lives of all Long Islanders through photographs and stories. Join us for a fast paced tour of our own "Route 66" and see how many iconic places along the way you recognize!

This program is part of the Library's celebration of the Summer Reading Theme 'All Together Now.'  The historic roadways of Long Island is a topic we all can relate to.
